Apparently, Antonio Brown was hoping to raise his salary this season before the mid-Sunday game.

The former Buccaneers receiver, who was officially released after a shirtless show at MetLife Stadium on Thursday, has asked for a guarantee of the remaining $ 2 million in his 2021 contract. According to Tampa Bay GM Jason Licht. The team denied the request of Brown and his agent.

Last spring, Brown agreed a one-year deal to return to the Buccaneers, signing a contract worth up to $ 6.25 million, with a $ 2 million bonus and a $ 3.1 million guarantee.

However, after his explosion, Brown lost up to $ 1 million to promote the deal. The receiver had three separate bonuses he could have achieved, According to Spotrac, each $ 333,333. Brown was embarrassed to open eight bonuses and needed 55 receiving yards to get another. The 33-year-old receiver reduced a single receiver tachdown for a third bonus.

After Sunday’s win over the Jets, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians Brown said he was “no longer Buck.” A few days later, Brown accused Arians and the organization of improperly treating the ankle sprain.

Arians addressed the show on Thursday after Brown’s official speech.

“During this game, he never asked the coach or the doctor about the ankle, it’s a simple protocol,” Arians said. “I was never told about it openly, that was the thing that bothered us when we were looking for him to return to the game.

Arians added on Thursday that he “started on the sidelines again” during the game, with Brown refusing to enter the game. According to Arians, he approached Brown about what was going on, in which the receiver allegedly told his coach, “I’m not playing” and “I’m not getting the ball.”

Then I said, “You’re done, get out of here.” That’s the end of it, “said Arians, confirming an earlier report ESPN correspondent Adam Schefter, Brown said he was “excited” that he wasn’t targeted during the game.

Antonio Brown will leave the field on Sunday, January 2, 2022, after dropping his uniform and throwing his equipment into the stands of the MetLife Stadium.
